Memorial Cup begins Friday in Red Deer Think of it as the Canadian Final Four.

Unlike our NCAA Basketball Final Four, however, our neighbors north of the border get a whole week of games instead of three games over three days as the annual MasterCard Memorial Cup begins Friday in Red Deer, Alberta.

More reflections from Carter Hart  on being named WHL Goalie of the Year I had an extended conversation with Everett Silvertips goaltender Carter Hart after he was named the WHL Goaltender of the Year last week. None of this made it into the story, but I thought it was worth putting on the blog.

Yesterday was the annual WHL bantam draft and the Everett Silvertips added a dozen players to the organization. Of course all 12 probably won’t play in Everett, but at least some of them figure to be in the mix sooner rather than later.

2016-17 Preview: The future overagers Currently there are six overage candidates for next season’s three Everett Silvertips overage slots. However, that could certainly change. Last year at this time there were seven potential overagers and by the time camp rolled around the list had been trimmed to four. The organization certainly has ample time to make some moves.

2015-16 Review: Coaching Everett Silvertips head coach Kevin Constantine was named the WHL’s Coach of Year in 2004 after leading the Tips to their only Western Conference title in their first season. That remains the only time a Tips mentor has earned the honor in the 13-year history of the franchise.

2015-16 Review: The overagers It seems that usually a 20-year-old serves as a WHL team’s captain. In that sense the 2015-16 Everett Silvertips were unique in that their captain was 19-year-old Dawson Leedahl.

2015-16 Review: Trying to put the Everett Silvertips season in perspective The players are gone, having returned to homes as close as rural Snohomish County and as far away as Innsbruck, Austria. The general manager is in Calgary prepping for the bantam draft. The head coach longs for the return of this week’s earlier weather so he can head out to the San Juan Islands. And the broadcaster is on the golf course.

The Game
This one snowballed. The Tips got off to their best first-period start of the series, but it all fell apart in the second period.

It began when Carter Hart misplayed Scott Eansor’s shot from the slot. Everyone seemed to think Hart caught the puck - including Hart himself. But he never secured it and it trickled into the goal behind him.

Then came a couple of shots in which Hart was screened and before you knew it, it was...

NHL Central Scouting ranked Everett goaltender Carter Hart No. 2 among North American goalies in its final 2016 rankings released Tuesday morning.
